Dear Friends and Family,
Today, on Wednesday, September 27th, my day started off with a beautiful rainbow in the sky. The rainbow symbolized God’s way of celebrating that my chemotherapy treatments would soon be coming to an end. As my morning continued, my SCE family gave me a cupcake to celebrate my last chemo session.
My parents picked me up at work and we drove to MD Anderson. My first appointment of the day was meeting with the radiation oncologist. He discussed my treatment plan, which is 6 weeks of radiation Monday-Friday. I am also eligible to participate in a clinical trial, if I decide to participate in the clinical trial, I could have radiation for 4 weeks instead of 6 weeks and will receive a higher dosage, it just depends if I am chosen. I was also given a folder with side effects listed that radiation can cause.
After my meeting with the radiation oncologist, I did my labs which consisted of giving blood and having my blood work checked. I also met with the oncologist. She was excited that I would be receiving my last chemo treatment!
My chemo appointment was at 5:30 P.M. I was so excited that this would be my last chemotherapy appointment. I usually sleep during treatment, but I had numerous visitors visit while I received my last treatment. All of my visitors switched off coming into my room, my mom, my brother, my husband, my father-in-law, my mother-in-law, and my dad.
The video of the bell ringing is below!
